A classic problem 🤔 for beginners is how to conduct the chess opening. You can’t be expected to memorize tens of thousands of lines just so you get to the middlegame alive and avoid all the chess opening tricks. But you can sidestep chess opening traps and get a great position with a sound chess opening strategy built on the major chess opening principles.
And you won’t get many better teachers than the 12th World Champion Anatoly Karpov and “supercoach” GM Roman Dzindzichashvili! Karpov was World Champion for 10 years after the Fischer vs Karpov match that never was. Anatoly Karpov also has the most elite tournaments wins of all time and continued to challenge the next generation with the Anatoly Karpov vs Magnus Carlsen game.
For Anatoly Karpov chess is “everything: art, science and sport” and it’s this all-encompassing thinking that leads to his pure, effective approach to playing chess.
In this chapter from their “Opening Fundamentals”, Anatoly Karpov and Roman Dzindzi break down the basics of playing chess openings for beginners, specifically examining main lines in the Ruy Lopez opening and Scotch Opening.
Whether your aim is to become a chess opening pro or just score the occasional chess opening quick win, Karpov’s chess opening strategy will have you making rapid improvement. And Roman Dzindzichashvili’s chess philosophy is “if you can’t explain it, you don’t really understand it” which is why he loves teaching chess so much: he helps himself improve as well as his students!
GMs Karpov and Dzindzichashvili emphasize controlling the center squares (e4, d4, e5, d5) and active development of minor pieces in the opening, while being careful not to make too many pawn moves. Karpov’s incredibly deep understanding of chess combined with GM Dzindzichashvili’s vast experience in chess coaching makes the “Russian School of Chess” a truly unforgettable chess training experience.
